Local Warming

Yesterday's high temperature in Houston was 105°F, a mark which ABC13 News tells me ties the all-time Houston record for the month of June since they started recording temperatures. That record was set about a year ago. The overall Houston record high was in September, 2000, and again in August, 2011: 109°F. (Source: Wikipedia.)

105°F... that's not Houston weather, that's Dallas weather. Or at least it used to be. Houston's hottest average month is July, 84.4°F; that's part of what makes it bearable (and affordable) to live here. Nonetheless, today is forecast at 101°F.

But it doesn't have anything to do with global climate change. Oh no it doesn't. Because... oh, hey, look, Al Gore is getting old! [/snark]

  1. Maybe climate change will be accepted when Floridians experience ring around their coastal condos.
